Melanie Amaro, the X FACTOR 2011 winner sings a retooled version of "Respect" to Sir Elton John, the "King of rock" who gives Pepsi only to those he approves us. He sends the others down the hole. Melanie has other plans, she wants Pepsi for all.

“Pepsi wanted to make me “King for a Day” on Super Bowl Sunday. How could I possibly pass that up?” said Sir Elton John.
